Bucket List Photo Challenge: Day 11.

Day 11 of my Bucket List Photo Challenge!

I know Christmas is really over when I hit the bottom of the carton of Peppermint Ice Cream. This is definitely my guilty pleasure every Holiday season— but it lasts the whole month before and after Christmas! This minty ice cream is the one ice cream that you really only need a couple of bites to satisfy yourself. After those few bites, it all tastes the same! But my favorite part of this photo? The “thin & crispy” pizza box on the shelf below…. it’s like describing Calista Flockhart after a sunburn.

You can see my list of words and phrases for January below… we’ll caption the above photo MINT and scratch that item off the list.

Leaving Pocatello… Entering the West!

We had so much fun in Pocatello, Idaho!

Busy is good. That has been my refrain for years and years and years and years. And it’s true…. busy might not always be fun. But it is great to be in-demand, wanted, employed, needed, known as a go-to guy or a provider.

So when we completed visits to 9 Elementary Schools in two days… we were busy. And busy is good.

Here is a quick video… more after.

Our day in Pocatello started out great… with an awesome cup of coffee from this little drive-thru hut called “Double Shot”… I stick with plain old coffee, cream and pink sweeter, but these two menu items caught my eye:

Sooooo….. only our true fans are going to know the SECRETS hidden in these photos!

By the way, the manager (well, I think she was the manager…) got mad when she saw me whip out my camera and begin snapping photos of their menu. I promise— I’m not a coffee thief!! Although, the incident did bring to mind a song…

Otto Titsling, inventor and kraut,
had nothing to get very worked up about.
His inventions were failures, his future seemed bleak.
He fled to the opera at least twice a week.

Since I’m technically a Children’s Book author, I’ll stop right there. But I do thank Bette Midler for many great times.

Anyway, no– I wasn’t stealing recipes with these photos. But Joe and I were both giddy that there was a cupcake flavored latte… because our next book, Casey and Callie Cupcake, is slated to hit Amazon.com on November 6th, Election Day. On that day, when grown-ups are voting for President, kids can come online at www.PeteThePopcorn.com and vote for Casey or Callie.

Then— and kids that have heard a reading of Pete the Popcorn will know this— is the Grasshopper Mint biscotti! As they know, there is another book in the works for sometime in the future: Gilbert the Grasshopper!

So it seemed like our stop at Double Shot was destined! And the coffee was delicious!! If you girls (the manager?) we met there are reading this, thanks so much for a great story!

Thank you, Pocatello! We had an awesome time in your town and met some wonderful people. I certainly hope we can return in the future…

Have a great weekend, everybody.

Nick
